    And please, while you are at it Earle, tell them to move the goal posts farther apart when Bama is kicking XPs, or FGs...

    It was folly to have a superior play the part of a subordinate.

    This explains a lot. Now and then a call is made with the only explanation being cheating. Bookie $$$. I wonder how much was made on that call. No this is not blue font because it does happen.

    The line was -4.5, so USC didn't cover. Would have had to be a USC outright bet for it to matter.

    I don't know when this occurred in the game but anyone who thinks refs and officials don't take $$$ has a lot of explaining to do. There are those who won't believe it, I know, but don't they think it is funny that Politicians, Police, Preachers, Teachers, Lawyers, Judges, Coaches and players cheat -- but not refs and umps. No Way.

    Makes about as much sense. Why this guy felt free to inject himself into the review process is beyond me. The first thing that occurs to me is to wonder how many other areas he's meddled in which are outside his normal role...

    I think Larry Scott is the worst conference commissioner right now, by far, and maybe the worst we've seen in a long time.

    That conference has gone way downhill under his leadership. He botched the conference expansion deal with the Big 12 (I know Texas probably submarined that ultimately) and subsequently botched their conference network. If I'm not mistaken they are 5th among the power 5 in revenue right now because of the failure of that network. And this is not the first time they've had really odd officiating problems.
